Looking Glass Falls
Best seen in winter, the cascade freezes over, with large icicles dangling from the upper edge and the base pool turning to ice as well.
A 60-foot free fall into the pool below, this cascade tumbles out of Looking Glass Creek. A little over a decade ago, the Forest Service augmented the scenic spot with a handicapped-accessible viewing deck, a larger parking lot, and a new system of steps for easier access to the base. These much-needed updates supported the boom in visitors in recent years, so if you’re looking to avoid crowds, try going in winter or early spring.
